Price Range: $0-$200
Gig Length: 20 - 120 minutes
What to Expect
Incredible and Original content, heartfelt performances, impressive lyrical versatility and an amazing flow. Never late, never leave right after my set, always ready and willing for an encore, and a breath of fresh air in a packed and competitive genre.
My name is Jack Mabie, I'm a Pasadena native with an extensive repetoire of high-quality old-school/new-school fusion hip-hop with heavy influences ranging from De La Soul to Snoop Dogg to Outkast to Brother Ali. An event planner can expect prompt arrival, a courteous demeanor and an entertained audience.
I make a range of deeply personal, distinctly political, thought-provoking music with a decent selection of more club-friendly bangers in tow as well. Also, with the help of a few collaborators, I have a number of soulful, jazzy tunes that walk a fine line between love ballads and lyrical hip hop anthems. Currently in-process of recording my first full-length album, "Food For Thought", which has people from 626 to 406 buzzing with excitement. My last release, a mixtape titled "Tis The Season", gathered around 180,000 plays on SoundCloud after its release.
I have, at the time of this writing, performed somewhere in the range of 20-25 shows at venues ranging from restaurants, bars, ski lodges, banquet halls, birthday parties, fraternities and auditoriums. I was hailed by fellow students at Montana State University, while still in attendance, as being the best rapper in Montana during 2013, before my move back to LA.
Additional Booking Notes
Need auxiliary hookup as my instrumentals are all on my iPhone.
Nothing is set in stone with my perfomances. Will structure my set based on time allowed, audience vibe and restrictions on content set by the venue's management. I have over 3 hours of ready-to-perform material.
